How to Determine Stocking Rates of Ponds

A specific body of land or water can only support a specific number of species at a given time. Once an area has surpassed its maximum population, the entire ecosystem begins to suffer: the amount of food available decreases, water quality becomes poor, and the future population growth of the species becomes stunted.
